In no particular order here are a few photos of some of the games. I took almost 100 photos and still missed most of demonstration games and all of the participation ones but these are a very random sample of the many games that I had reason to stop at, chat to the players and generally admire (or not) the layout and figures.
My favourites were the Sands of the Sudan (Dave Docherty), Gadesbusch from the Great Northern War (Like a Stone Wall) and Magnesia (Simon Miller). If I was to wholly honest Ian Smith's 40mm ACW game, complete with gunboat and fortress was inspirational in many ways, and getting the terrain built professionally clearly lifts the game to another level, but seeing it in the flesh was almost a bit of an anti-climax. Odd. (Ian, if you're going to trash it all when you're done can I have some of the fortress guns please?)
As always the best bit of the show was the food. No. I jest. I really do. As usual it was the meeting up with lots of friends and acquaintances for a chat and to discuss our wonderful hobby that made the trip worthwhile. The show seemed a little quieter than the May Partizan but that may have been an illusion or the drugs. Well done the organisers, and I'm looking forward to Partizan 2019.
